Sándor Nagy, founding president of MSZOSZ passed away today, following a short, serious illness at the age of 69.
Between 1990-1995 as the first president of the National Confederation of Hungarian Trade Unions (MSZOSZ) he was a main mover of reforming the trade union movement – his person often identified as “the unionist”. He was a man of courage, always standing firm and fighting for collective interest defence in the trade union world and in the politics. By words and deeds he worked for the working people both at national and international level. Sándor Nagy was a recognised actor in the European trade union movement.
His personality and work remains exemplary. The Hungarian Trade Union Confederation will preserve his ethos and values.
